A hill run without hills?

The wind today was like running on hills. The wind was steady at 36 MPH with gusts up to 55. The image above is what the conditions were when I arrived home, it was actually a little warmer when I started.

Of course, my time was like a 9:49 average on the 8+ miles, that was actually pretty good considering the obstacles. Running into the west wind was going up a hill, running north and south it was pushing my feet into each other causing me to kick my ankles if I wasn’t staying focused, and running east was fighting the wind from pushing me, much like a downhill run.

It turned out to be a good multi-muscle workout which I don’t get on a normal run without all the resistance.
